It is often difficult to separate anxiety from danger because your body reacts in the same way to both. What triggers that anxiety in people often stems from a lack of knowledge of what they are experiencing. In my own experience flying around the world, it appears to me that many people have no idea how airplanes work, how they stay in the air, and what the risks are associated to flying. I am here to talk to those people who are uncomfortable with flying because they really don't know anything about flying and are interested in alleviating their fears with knowledge. I can educate you about how aircraft fly, how jet engines work, and what keeps helicopters in the air. To be honest, if you knew what I know, much of your fear of flying would disappear. In this book I will teach you what I know and explore things that are new and exciting in the world of aviation. As well, I will teach you what I know and explore things that are new and exciting in the world of aviation. I will also discuss many of the things that people mistakenly think are true and explain how they could never happen.
